An economic evaluation of alternative nutrient management practices in sustaining resource base productivity

, : An economic evaluation of alternative nutrient management practices in sustaining resource base productivity. Economics of agro chemicals: an international overview of use patterns, technical and institutional determinants, policies and perspectives Selected papers of the symposium of the International Association of Agricultural Economists held at Wageningen, the Netherlands, 24-28 April 1996: 117-126

This paper draws on evidence from the Indian Punjab to estimate the impact of conventional and alternative tillage (reduced/conservation) and nutrient management practices in rice-wheat farming on soil degradation, and compare the economic efficiency of these management practices in sustaining productivity.
